For those lovers of luxury, here is our edit of the top robes and kimonos you can shop online today. These international designers combine high-end premium quality, with a deliciously sensual fit. See which designer brands made our cut for this season’s new trend jacket: the kimono!
Founded in 2015 in Singapore by designer and creator Lisa Von Tang, there is already a seriously dedicated following for this luxe local brand that is known for its stunning kimonos and jackets. We love how LVT’s designs are unapologetically bold, sexy and unique, and yet make women feel super comfortable. Gone are the days when one must suffer for fashion! We also adore how the brand uses sustainable locally sourced fabric, like this shimmering violet silk jacquard.
Lisa Von Tang makes many of her pieces reversible like this slouchy yet chic Unawatuna Robe. The reversibility enables you to wear one side to work, and then flip it to the party side for later that night – and get more mileage from just one piece in your wardrobe. From their embroidery detailing, rare woven brocades and luxurious lace and silk, Lisa Von Tang’s robes make you look and feel like a goddess, whether it’s a daytime look, or worn over lingerie!
On that note, we are totally lusting after Lisa Von Tang’s bralettes, silk meditation pants, and mini lounge shorts! Somehow everything can be slept in or dressed up with a pair of booties for a glamorous night on the town. Shopping tip: if you love one of her pieces, grab it fast, as this brand sells on the top international luxury retailer, Farfetch.com, and their highly limited quantities sell out fast. For seekers of serious exclusivity, we’ve also noticed that the best offering of styles is always on the designer’s own website lisavontang.com.
